Building The World’s Longest LEGO Bridge in Tempe

Screen Shot 2016-02-11 at 10.56.11 AM

On Saturday, March 19th, Play-Well TEKnologies and the City of Tempe will collaborate with families in the community to build a replica of the Tempe Old Mill Avenue Bridge out of LEGO.

We are hoping to build a 200-Foot Long LEGO bridge and we will need your help in order to do it. Come learn about various types of bridge architecture, play with LEGO, and be a part of one of the longest LEGO bridges ever made in the state of Arizona, maybe even the country. The best part about it is the event is free.

There are two separate time slots to register:

  • 10 AM – 12 PM
  •  12 PM – 2 PM

Click HERE To Register!

This event will be held at Tempe Public Library.

Feel free to share this with family and friends. Be sure to sign up fast though, as we only have so many slots available.

Play-Well has broken a World Record in the past for the World’s Longest LEGO Chain. Check out the video below.
